99 year young
Evelyn was born in 1918 in Toronto, Ontario. She lived in Toronto most of her life and worked at the Power supermarket (now Loblaws) as a cashier for 25 years. Travelling was a joy for her. “I traveled all over the world including Hawaii, Europe, Italy, and Florida. My daughter was a flight attendant and she took me everywhere”. Evelyn’s husband was in the Canadian Military, ‘He was easy to get along with, he was a hard worker and a good kisser”! (client laughs). We got married in 1940 and he passed away in 1977. Evelyn found this a little painful to talk about as she still misses him and thinks about these things when she is alone. Some of her hobbies and favorite things to do were knitting, playing baseball, and volleyball in her youth. Some of her fondest memories were visiting Hawaii and buying her home in Florida. Advice from her for others would be, “keep moving and exercising, and having a sense of humour is important”. Evelyn has been a PSL client for over 8 years. “I would not be able to live on my own without PSL”, they are the best; they are approachable, and kind. They are my angels”.
